Last post April 2010! It can't be. So much has happened. I went to camp and got injured, had 2 knee surgeries and gained 30 pounds. Sooooo, I am at it again. This time changing my food for life. Making bad food choices got me in this way so I figured making good choices will get my out. I actually started this journey in June of 2014. My son got engaged and I had told him when he decides to get married Please! give me a year to get in shape for the celebration, and he did! He called and reminded me that I had made that request. That was the little shove that I needed. So I am eating healthy. No bread or grain, which by the way revealed that I have a sensitivity to gluten! I feel so much better. I don't eat refined sugar or processed foods. No dairy. I really have never been a drinker so that's not a problem. I like to say that I am a modified paleo dieter! Although I will occasionally have some rice and potatoes. So since June 2014 I have lost 25 pounds. Not ground breaking but definitely on the road. My knees feel better, it's easier to walk and get in and out of bed. I have 50 pounds to loose by Oct 23, 2015. I feel like I am going to make it happen. If you have words of encouragement I would love to hear them. This is the dress that I want to look fabulous in!!!!

Jump Rope NOT

Well I tried the jump rope and I have a new found respect for people that CAN jump rope. They make it look so easy. I felt like an elephant when I jumped for 5 SECONDS, forget 5 minutes. Although I have started walking 3.5 miles, I am afraid that just won't be enough to keep me from dying at "camp". It's really not the physical activity that scares me it's the possibility of getting injured that has me worried. I am very limited in what I can do at this weight.............which will remain a secret to all except myself and my God!

Jump Rope

I got out of bed this morning after yesterdays workout, and everything hurt. I decided I better get in gear, so I bought a jump rope, and down loaded the song from the new Acura commercial, Pa' Bailar, on to my itunes. Tomorrow 3 minutes of jumping to start and see what happens, maybe I'll go 4 minutes, you just never know....

Still Healing

Yes that is my famous foot! Pretty cool looking scar, ha. It's still swollen but getting better everyday. I have started back walking, for my exercise. Not as quickly as before but it gets easier every day. "Fat Camp" has been moved up to April 18, to make sure we meet the April 15 deadline for filing our returns, and so I can feel confident that my foot is healed and ready to take a pounding! I can only imagine the torture that I am going to put myself through! Giving up coffee will be bad enough but a 5:20 wake-up for boot camp, shoot..............

I'm back, from the effects of Vicadin, that is, never again can I take that particular drug. I must be allergic. I missed my dental appointment and lost a whole day to what felt like a hangover, a doozy of a hangover. I didn't even have the great drunk experience that usually precedes the hangover. No yummy Margarita or Gin Martini, no speaker dancing (now you know how old I am, in the last decade speakers have become invisible) or inappropriate comments to regret. Today I will start an exercise program that does not involve any movement that is weight bearing. Wish me luck.

Almost There

Well I did it..............I had foot surgery. In preparation for "fat camp". Now I am sitting on my big fat #$% and I actually want to go out and walk, run any type of exercise would be great. I can't believe this swollen foot will ever heal. It's been 2 weeks and it still feels like it's going to explode when I put my weight on it. Maybe thats the problem. Na, my other foot is hanging in there. Stitches out tomorrow. Hopefully that will help.............
